Upcoming lane closures on Ballard Bridge

Earlier this month, maintenance work on both directions of the Ballard Bridge (above) triggered massive traffic backups and prompted a flood of complaints. SDOT delayed additional work in an effort to consolidate its projects and minimize the impact on drivers.

Today SDOT has announced the new maintenance work, and it will impact only the northbound lanes. On April 3rd and April 10th, the curbside northbound lane on the bridge will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Bike and pedestrian traffic will not be impacted. The bridge will have normal marine traffic closures “as SDOT is required to close the bridge to vehicle traffic and open for marine traffic crossings per federal law,” SDOT says in the advisory.

At least they are only doing it while productive people are at work. The “drinking wine during The Price Is Right” crowd may have to limit their day drinking & driving.

“Concerned Ballard Millenial” Give me a break. Sorry that some of us appreciate wholesome television. Go watch the Jersey Shore and go “fist-pumping.”
